The Indy

The Indy is a student housing project in Marietta, Georgia near Kennesaw State University in the Town Village mixed use complex near the Kennesaw State Athletic Complex.

This project is 5 stories of Type III wood construction with 172 units and 543 beds.  The building wraps around a 6.5 story precast parking garage.   Many amenity spaces were included in the design such as: lobby, club room, small group room, large communal study room, leasing area, yoga room, fitness center, and a rooftop terrace.

There are extensive retaining and basement conditions to account for the approximately 30 feet of fall on the site.   Shallow foundations were used for the entire project.

E+M provided foundation and retaining wall design for the precast parking garage.  Parking garage foundations were shallow on soil improved with an aggregate pier system.
